Distance you read off directly from the graph. Speed is the rate of increase of distance, so it is the slope (gradient) of the graph.

Speed is found by dividing the distance by the time. S=D/T You can use this equation for any point on the graph.

a distance- time graph is a graph that the variations in distance against the variations in time .the gradient of this graph gives up the value of speed.-the definition of speed is speed is the time taken to travel a certain distance.

speed is the gradient under the distance vs time graph which is change in distance /change in time

The variable plotted along the vertical axis is the distance in the first case, speed in the second. The gradient of (the tangent to) the distance-time graph is the speed while the area under the curve of the speed-time graph is the distance.

The graph of distance vs time increases exponentially as speed increases.

Distance = Area under the graph.

That's not correct. If you have a graph of distance as a function of time, the speed is the slope of the graph.

You can calculate speed by taking the gradient (dy/dx) from a Distance-time graph since s=d/t

The slope of a distance-time graph represents speed.

No. The slope of the distance-time graph is the change in distance per unit of time - otherwise known as speed. Acceleration is the slope of the speed time graph.

The speed is the slope of the curve in such a graph.
